Things with Wings

The challenge at The Play Date Cafe is a colour challenge using soft green, peachy pink and cream. In my pic, the background green layer looks blueish, but in real life it is like sea glass green.

On the background paper, I  randomly stamped one of Tim Holtz small acrylic script stamps in Antique Linen distress ink. All layers are sponged with Antique Linen DI.

The verse by Hampton Arts "Life's Beautiful" is stamped with Walnut Stain DI and layer cut with Spellbinders circle.

The brown lacy doily is a new Cheery Lynn die "Sophia's Heart".

I made the flower with Tim's Tattered Floral die using paper from Coles' Notes - Homer's "The Odyssey". My daughter's books from university came in handy! LOL! The layers were sponged with Broken China DI, spritzed with Ranger Blue Patina Pearl Mist, and some Rock Candy distress stickles.

I found the butterfly at my local Dollar Store, and the peach roses are Kaisercraft.
